Air Plants, also known as Tillandsia, are some of the easiest plants to grow. While they are called "air plants" they still need water, nutrients, and light to survive. Air Plants are technically Epiphytes, meaning that they grow on another tree, host, or object. However, they do not steal nutrients from their host, only using it as a home to grow on. Air plants use tiny vessels located throughout their leaves called trichomes to capture nutrients and moisture from the air.
Why are air plants so easy to grow? These bromeliads get all of the water and nutrients they need through their specialized leaves. Air plants use their roots only for attaching themselves to rocks, trees, shrubs, and the ground. Native to the southern United States, Mexico, Central America, and South America, air plants are warm-weather lovers that can thrive despite neglect; hence why they do so well indoors in the UK.
